Continuous build-up of dust and debris such as dust, smoke and mineral deposits from rain water reduces the efficiency of the windshield wiper blades on your car. Poorly performing wiper blades create hazardous driving conditions when it's raining, potentially leading to accidents or even death. Performing frequent wiper blade maintenance significantly improves the efficiency with which the wipers remove dust, debris and water from the windshield and saves the cost, frequency and hassle of purchasing and installing new windshield wiper blades.
